Life Struggles Before and After

truth in the inner parts

The struggles that people encounter in their daily lives affect every Christian and non-Christian sooner or later. But by coming closer to the Lord and having a personal relationship with Him, people can find freedom and deliverance from past struggles and bondage. In her new Xulon Press title Life Struggles Before and After ($11.99, paperback, 978-1-60957-957-9), author Iris D. Rodriguez reveals her gripping life story and shows how with God’s guidance she was able to overcome the struggles of her past. From sexual abuse to estrangement from family, her sincerity and honesty in retelling her experiences will resonate with readers from all walks of life, for God desires “truth in the inner parts” (Psalm 51:6).

“Let’s take the lead in this generation, but with God’s guidance,” the author encourages readers. “We do not need to limit ourselves in anything we want to do for God. God is able to make all grace abound to you so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”

The author says that for the past two years, God has been using her to carry all different types of messages to His people—including the messages contained within the pages of this book. When He gave her the vision of writing it, she wanted to write about encouraging others, but for some reason God kept changing her thoughts. The topic of her book soon evolved to become about God and His purpose for each and every person—as well as how to be persistent in His Word.
